Hummus is pretty healthy anyway, and it is always a good choice of snack. But, most ready made hummus has loads of oil in it, as well as tahini (which I don’t think is necessary), which can really bump up the calories. This recipe is really simple, and the best thing about it is that you can make any flavour hummus you want. I went with a red pepper and paprika, but try adding some spice with chili or some caramelised onions or just leave it plain.
– 1 tin of chick peas (drained and rinsed)
– Juice from 1 lemon
– 2 garlic cloves, crushed]
– 1 tbsp tahini
– 1 tbsp olive oil
– 2 tbsp water
– 1 red pepper
– 1 tbsp paprika
1) Put all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.
